You wrap your
Arms around me
Full embrace
I wrap mine
Around you
Clinging like
My life depends on it

Contact from
Head to thigh
You step in closer
Closing any gaps
Your warmth
Mingling with mine

Head buried in
Your neck
Deep breath

I feel my shoulders
Finally drop
My jaw
A long deep breath
Let’s out
Tears I thought
Were done

Finally a release
You hold me tight
Face pressed into
Your shoulder
Relying on your strength
Mine is gone
I can let go
Safe with you

A barely audible
Thank you
Grief and pain
A bit lighter

We let go
But I still feel you
